  1. Twenty-five years ago, our 18 year old son fell from a second-story roof, and died from a closed-head injury. By the time he was found, it had been hours since the actual event, and so much damage had been done to his brain, he couldn’t make it; some well-regarded neurosurgeons showed us the progression. telling us that, at best, D might be in a coma for the remainder of his life…which, for D, was no life. We let him go, and his organ-donor-marked driver’s license enabled 7 others to have their lives extended or enhanced. The man who received his heart sent us photos of his newest grandchildren, a daughter’s marriage, and himself, 10 years later.

    D was a recent HS graduate (2 wks, ready to start college, run track on scholarship, and study music production and environmental science….btw, he wanted to be a roadie, didn’t want to go to college, but we convinced him that he need to be an educated roadie. something to fall back on. He taught himself to play the guitar, wrote poetry, created interesting artwork, and didn’t like reading very much until he got his hands on Stephen King and Dean Koontz…then there was no stopping him.

    It was the saddest thing that ever happened to our other child, a daughter who was one hear older…D’s passing ended her childhood, it still influences how she struggles to parent her sons,,,she knows that they have to live their lives, and that she can only guide them….but the imprint of our family’s loss is forever with us, with her.
